Howard Finster Silkscreen Prints

Howard Finster was a well known Folk and Outsider Artist from North Georgia.  He began his visions at the age of three.  He is famous for his album covers,  portraits of celebrities, representations of pop icons and his silkscreen prints.  Paradise Garden, which is located at his home and shop in Summerville Georgia, is a popular tourist attraction.  He was dedicated to putting his message out there. 
His last prayer for Mankind:
"Call upon the name of Jesus, even in your last breath, pray the Lord's Prayer, pray without ceasing, love one another, forgive your brother, win his love, Jesus is coming in great power and glory, be ready to go."
